What is Resource super doing?

As always, our message remains that superannuation is a long-term investment. History has shown that short-term periods of negative returns and volatility – while stressful – are entirely expected and part of the normal journey for the growth of long-term superannuation investments.

There are a variety of events that can, and have, caused share market volatility over the years – from recessions and tech bubbles, the 9/11 terrorist attack in the US, natural disasters like tsunamis, the Global Financial Crisis (GFC), and more recently Brexit. Right now, it is a global health event. Each of these events have resulted in market falls and periods of volatility, but without fail there has been a corresponding bounce-back and a continued trend of increased investment value and returns over the longer-term.

Your financial security is our priority

First and foremost, our risk management practices are something we take very seriously. Over decades we have guided many of the world’s largest investors and millions of investors just like you through market events like these, and have learnt to be careful, disciplined and deliberate in any actions we take. Resource Super has a robust global business continuity program that includes incident management, health and safety precautions and backup facilities. Your financial security is always our number one priority

The Resource Super philosophy remains solid, and our investment approach is focused on the medium to long-term investment objectives of our members. The construction of our diversified investment portfolios ensure that we remain well balanced and diversified across various asset classes, industries and regions.

Our investment experts are closely monitoring the market outlook, assessing portfolio risks, and fine-tuning portfolio positions. We have trading operations in all major time zones so can move quickly if required. The global team of economists, strategists, analysts and portfolio managers have lived and learned through many market cycles and volatility events and are well prepared to manage your money in all market conditions. Our strategists are also committed to producing frequent market updates in response to the ongoing crisis, keeping you informed on global markets and potential impacts.
